UPDATE 7/15/20 – Pumpkin Show, Inc. officially cancels the 2020 Circleville Pumpkin Show
CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (Dimple Times) – City council met via a phone conference on April 21st to discuss many topics, one of the topics touched on was the concern of whether or not there would be a Pumpkin Show later this year.
“I’m getting lots of questions from the general public and media about the plans for the 2020 Circleville Pumpkin Show,” Councilperson Barry Keller explained after sharing that he asked Katie Hedges to add the topic to their agenda. Keller is also Vice President of Pumpkin Show, Inc.
With the current situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, many events have been rescheduled or postponed to new dates, some later in the year and some pushed out to 2021. This left the local community of Circleville, Ohio in a search for answers on the fate of the event that closes out fairs for the year. They were able to get an answer in April.
“As of today, we are planning to hold the festival,” Keller shared, going on to add: “And, so I thought it was appropriate to go ahead and get the resolution to committee and City Council for approval, to kind of let the public aware that we are planning to host and hold the 114th edition of the Circleville Pumpkin Show.”
The Circleville Pumpkin Show starts the third Wednesday in October and runs through to Saturday.
